Principles of Visual Perception - Proximity (MaxFactor)

Project Published 9/16/13 Last updated on 5/16/18

At any given moment, vast amounts of visual stimuli enter the eye—far more than we can pay attention to. The brain selects and organizes visual information according to a number of visual perceptual principles.
Proximity
The law of proximity states that when an individual perceives an assortment of objects they perceive objects that are close to each other as forming a group. In other words ,When the individual parts of a stimulus pattern are close to each other, we tend to group them together as a meaningful ‘whole’—a single unit.
